to bar u.s. human rights abuses. some say this is all evidence of a new cold war. stephen cohen is a professor at nyu and william brodeur was an ambassador in russia, and was his former employer and he is, of course, one of the biggest proponents behind the magnitsky act. welcome to you both. >> thank you. >> william, explain the importance of the act from your point of view? >> very simply, it is a piece of legislation which is sort of designed for the modern day problems of what's going on in russia. in russia, you have a regime which is basically out to steal as much money as possible from their own people. in response to that, when people try to stop it in any way, like sergei magnitsky, they get killed. what the act does is it creates consequences for the corrupt murdering kelp to crates running russia today and creates consequences outside of russia by banning their visas and freezing their assets in america. >> steve cohen, you disagree with the magnitsky act. do you wish congress hadn't passed it? >> i do for many reasons, but as you said in your introduction i think mos

, then alys cohen, staff attorney for the national consumer law center. and then if i move all the way to my right-hand side, susan walker, who's professor -- susan wanter in from the university of pennsylvania, david moskowitz and karen thomas, senior executive vice president for government relations at the independent community bankers association of america. thank you all for being here, and perhaps we might start with you, mr. calhoun. >> thank you. today the cfpb announces one of its most important rules, the qualified mortgage ability to repay rule, along with the upcoming mortgage servicing rules that will come out next week that address failures in the mortgage market that devastated millions of families and our overall economy. the twin drivers of this were widespread, unaffordable loans and a broken mortgage servicing system that severely aggravated the ensuing wave of foreclosures. the goal of the dodd-frank legislation and the rule today are to redirect incentives so that lenders are encouraged to make loans that are long-term sustainable, not just generators of short-term fees.
is there. >> wall street is it watching sac capital, steve cohen, one of the largest hedge fund managers out there, the company and he reportedly disclosed that the firm received a wells notice from the sec which means it could be sued for securities laws violations. is that true? >> i -- >> can you comment? >> i will not comment on any investigation but as you bring up insider trading i will note over 160 cases in the last three years. nearly $900 million in illegal gains or losses avoided we have charged. so another area we have been extremely vigorous and active. >> how many insider trading cases are currently in the pipeline? are there dozens more you're looking into, is that fair to say? >> i don't want to put a number on it and remains a high priority and active area. >> what about in high speed trading, high frequency trading? the sec is concerned about that. are you looking into any potential securities law violations with high speed trading or high frequency trading? >> look, we're looking at a sort of number of actors and transactions in the market structure case. we brought ca
by the last two democratic presidents. william cohen, and bob gates, re-appointed by president obama in 2009. and chuck hagel is a republican senator from nebraska. the republican committee is not jumping up and down celebrating. today, they released a statement about serious concerns that hagel has taken on a range of critical national security issues. republican senator graham got even more specific. >> chuck hagel, if confirmed to be secretary of defense would be the most antagonistic secretary of defense towards israel in our nation's history. he said you should negotiate with iran, sanctions won't work, that israel must negotiate with hamas, he has long cut his ties with the republican party. this is an in-your-face nomination by the president, to those of us that support. >> he means they have this to say about the conservative movement, america, the next chapter. chuck hagel writes, so why did we invade iraq? i believe it is the triumph, arrogance and incompetent that took america into this war of choice. chuck hagel, it should be said did not begin his career as a foreign policy apos
cohen on the program yesterday and he thinks the republicans just aren't going to introduce it in the house. so did you get a sense talking to the players at the white house how hard they're going to push, and what the chance of succeeding are? >> like he said, this is not a short-term thing. this is a long haul we're in for. even from day one after the shooting in newtown connecticut, we have to change our understanding of how to deal with these things. instead of going to capitol hill and lobbying, we've been going to people saying they're the missing piece in gun violence. it's the sustained engagement that has not been there for a number of years that needs to be there in order for elected officials from both parties to step forward. because of what we've seen already it's been a month since the shooting in connecticut our phones have been hanging off the hook activists are coming to us every day marchs planned across the country that is allowing senator casey senator warner to step up and say things we never heard before. americans are playing the most vital role in thi

: the gentleman yields back. for what purpose does the gentleman from tennessee seek recognition? mr. cohen: to address the house for one minute. the speaker pro tempore: does the gentleman ask for unanimous consent? mr. cohen: i do indeed. the speaker pro tempore: the gentleman from tennessee is recognized for one minute. mr. cohen: thank you, mr. speaker. we've heard from a colleague of mine on the democratic side who sounds like he's not going to vote for this provision and we heard from a couple folks from the other side. i'm going to vote for it, not because i think it's all the best, sugar and spice and everything nights, but because for one thing, i believe our president and our vice president know what they can get in a negotiated deal with the republican side in the senate and what might pass this house as well. and they know what our country needs. and my district can't afford to wait a few days and have the stock market go down 300 points tomorrow if we don't get together and do something and people in my district need unemployment compensation and they need to know in the future

senator william cohen he appointed to his defense secretary. and president george bush did the same thing, he pointed one democrat, norman mineta was chosen by george w. bush to serve as transportation secretary. in george w. bush's second term, norm mineta stuck around. he did not leave until close to the end. so president bush never appointed another democrat, but he did have that one democrat, norman mineta during that term in his cabinet. barack obama at this point has doubled the record of cabinet bipartisanship of his predecessors, and more than that. you'll recall that he picked bob gates to stay on as secretary of defense. so republican at defense. president obama also picked ray lahood for the norm mineta honorary bipartisanship chair over at the department of transportation. transportation was held by a democrat under bush. it has been held by a republican the whole time under obama. but beyond that, beyond defense and transportation, president obama also had another attempt at bringing another republican into his cabinet. you remember when he offered judd gregg the job of comme
to the hospital. our senior medical correspondent elizabeth cohen joins us by phone from louisville, texas. we have you on the phone because we know you're working on a flu story about kids. give us a preview. >> it's a terrible story of a completely healthy 17-year-old boy who got the flu, you know, kids get the flu, it happens, but it did not, he got very sick, very quickly and unfortunately, he ended up passing away, and this is what sometimes happens with kids. kids can look completely fine, and in less than 24 hours, or about 24 hours later that child is on a respirator in the intensive care unit, and a lot of these kids are just completely healthy kids with no underlying health problems and we don't know why most kids are okay with the flu. they're sick for a little while and get better. some of them die, we just don't know why. >> is it too late to get a flu vaccine to protect our kids, to protect ourselves? >> it isn't too late. that's one of two things i'll tell parents to do, to be empowered parents. this is so crucial. one, get your child the flu shot. we heard that people are still
autism lost their symptoms as they grew older. senior medical correspondent elizabeth cohen here to talk to me about this study. first, just explain the study. >> it is fascinating because it turns conventional wisdom on its head. doctors thought you can't outgrow autism once you're diagnosed, that's it. you have it. these researchers found 34 kids who were diagnosed with autism by good doctors who know what they're doing as very young kids before the age of 5, and then they -- years later when they looked at them, they didn't have any signs of autism. they were examined and the signs were gone. >> so how is this even possible? >> a couple of things going on. they found in some ways this group of kid had somewhat milder autism to begin with, that's one thing. it could also have something to do with the early intervention that these kids got, some of the training and the schooling and what have you, the therapy these kids got. and it also might have something to do with the children's individual brains. maybe there was something about their brains. and researchers have told me, you know,
to the clinton administration when president clinton invited william cohen, a republican to be defense secretary. then the obama administration, president obama asked robert gates, a republican to be defense secretary. then there was leon panetta. and now another republican, chuck hagel. what's wrong with democrats being defense secretary? >> right. actually, just as an historical footnote, roberts used to be a republican. you know, i think that there's a sort of feeling that each one of these can be justified. i think president clinton and cohen had a good relationship, as does president obama and senator hagel. in gates' instance, that made a lot of sense. so much was going on that you didn't want to have an immediate change in the defense. but that is true, that it looks like democrats always want to appoint republican secretaries of defense. also if you look at the history of the independent councils, they have almost all been republicans. and as a democrat i sometimes get frustrated, too. we can't find an independent council in our own party. i can understand the frustration but the preside
, cheryl cohen greene around this time after the sundance film festival. >> my job is to help a person who is not sick or broken, just like all of us, myself included, to have a better understanding of their sexuality. we don't get a lot of good training and conversation when we are growing up about it and a lot of people come to their sexual feelings and desires from a sense of shame and embarrassment. >> for some viewers, i have to ask what is the difference between what you do and the oldest profession? >> well, my intention is very different. my intention is to not have clients come back. it's an education process that can be a lot of fun and it can be anxiety-provoking which is good because we work with the therapist around the anxiety that might be happening during our sessions. the focus is to help a person go out into the world feeling much better about who they are so they can share that with another person. >> i want to talk about the film. we mentioned the film based on your experience counselling this one man in particular. this poet, mark o'brien who got polio with a child and

"lincoln," no surprise. 12 nominations there. you were surprised, two movies we're hearing about, "amour" in two major categories nominated, as well as beast"beasts of the southern wild". >> those are two movies that made great gains today. "beasts of the southern wild," and wallace
the top of this morning by mr. cohen -- the op ed by mr. cohen. we will discuss the accuracy, historical and artistically inside, but does a masterful job in suggesting in the real world there are no right angles and no easy answers to very difficult situations. that, to me, was a great service. >> i also liked the movie. it was very entertaining, but it is a movie, and there were some things i really liked and things i did not like. i did not like, for example, the portrayal of the enhanced interrogation techniques. i did not like the fact that it made a false link between torture and intelligence successes. i also think torture does not work, and our programs work because it was not tortured. there were other things i liked about the movie. i liked the fact that it conveyed that this was a 10-year marathon parian rather than a sprint -- rather than a sprint by a president, and the agency was the focus of this effort and succeeded because of the commitment, dedication, and tenacity of its people. i like the fact that it showed the enhanced interrogation program had something to do with
that his critics have been referencing. this is from "the wall street journal." host: richard cohen weighs in in his piece in "the washington post." host: rebecca in ohio. thank you for waiting. caller: good morning. how well is he being vetting? i have watched him on tv. he is anti-semitic. i am concerned that the government does nothing for the american people. they don't have to participate in the obamacare. but they are making decisions for lives. what is theng -- regard for the american military from chuck hagel? host: what have you been watching from the former senator? caller: i watch on fox news and msnbc. it isn't just for secretary of defense. he has been a senator for a lot of years. he is not new on this page. host: her comments about how he views men and women in the military. guest: he was a prominent member on the senate foreign relations committee. i struggle with people who throw around terms saying he is anti- semitic. i do not know if most people would be comfortable saying that about chuck hagel. i think the term jewish lobby, a is a phrase he used in a quotation, use p
double arm transplants. want to bring in elizabeth cohen. i love stories like this. it's like wow. >> amazing. >> to see that guy smile and say i'm hopeful when he looks at the other arm, maybe this other arm will work well. how did they do this? >> get to one why arm is doing better than the other arm. it may have to do with where the transplants took place. on the right one it was actually above, so the new arm is -- it was here, it was from here down. the other one from somewhere around here down. the more arm you have to transplant the more difficult time somebody's going to have. so that's an important thing to remember. so the more arm you have to transplant, the more difficult the recovery's going to be because these doctors are putting together tendons, muscles, nerves, blood vessels. really tiny surgery. they practiced on cadavers first which i thought was fascinating. trained surgeons, they practiced on cadavers first. >> is it possible that -- he's hopeful, the second arm, is it possible he will have full functioning arms at some point? >> he may not have full functioni

because -- >> that's right. >> you and google idea director jerry cohen are publishing a book called "the new digital age." can you give us an idea or preview on what the book is going to cover? i presume some of the things you have been talking about. >> we sat down over the last 18 mont, traveled around the world and talked to people about where they thought technology was going and more importantly, how society would adapt to it, a we came to the end of the book with a very optimistic view of this. a simple way of thinking about it, let's go back to the economist. it covers dictators, economic problems, corruption, technological innovation, health care issues and general sort of things. >> a google occasionally. >> last week. >> yes, we were on the cover and covered us as well. so let's go through each of those. how to you solve the back dictator problem? you empower the simpsons. unless the dictator is willing to some out down the internet and shoot everybody can they're getting desperate enough to do, it puts a real check and balance, even china which is certainly not an elected coun
elizabeth cohen in new york, where the demand for the vaccine is so high, people are on a waiting list to get a shot. elizabeth. >> kate, joe, there are shortages of vaccine in various parts of the country. but we're hearing it's especially bad in new york. and it may be because the governor declared this public health emergency, so people are rushing to get their shots, which is good, but sometimes they're not finding them. for example, this urgent care center stayed open over the weekend but actually ran out of shots. they just got a shipment this morning at 11:30. the staff immediately got on the phone, called people on the wait list, saying, come in, get your shot. people were glad to see them. a lot of people have been looking all over for a flu vaccination. >> i looked at one place and they were out. >> i tried three dwayne reeds and one cvs and then came to the urgent care. >> reporter: as part of the public health emergency, governor cuomo gave pharmacists special permission to vaccinate minors. usually, they're not allowed to do that. but there seems to have been a little catc
